Deleting Backup Repository

You can delete a backup repository configured with Veeam Agent for Linux. When you delete a backup repository, Veeam Agent for Linux removes record on the deleted repository from its database. Backup files created by a backup job targeted at the deleted backup repository remain intact on the backup storage.

To delete a backup repository, use the following command:

veeamconfig repository delete --id <repository_id>


veeamconfig repository delete --name <repository_name>


  • <repository_id> — ID of the backup repository that you want to delete.
  • <repository_name> — name of the backup repository that you want to delete.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig repository delete --name Repository_1


Deleting Backup Repository Note:

You cannot delete a backup repository that is specified as a backup storage location in the backup job settings.
